MANUEL CHARR is ready for a war with David Haye and a hostile atmosphere in Manchester is the least of his worries.
The Lebanon-born heavyweight will use his purse from his scrap with Londoner Haye on June 29 at Manchester Arena to help those suffering in the Syrian civil war.
Charr, 28, is based in Cologne and has two sisters living in Homs in Syria, which is at the heart of a bloody conflict.
He said: “I have good medical help and these people have nothing.
“My sisters ring me and say they have problems – no money, no food and their husbands cannot go outside because they are afraid they will be killed.
“I send them money but want to do more. We need the nation to stop the killing, stop the war. This is why I fight David Haye, to help people take notice.”
